Pinned toot

- I'm Stuart. Much better at listening quietly than posting.

Sometimes I half-write weird and wonderful games which require my brain in order to play.

I would love to own a dinosaur but I probably wouldn't be a responsible owner...

(If you're looking for a recommendation, Best of F#iends is like low-prep Monsterhearts and A Question for Mama is a Magical Realist Fairy Tale designed to make you cry.)

If you're looking for a quick pick-up one shot game, I may have you covered - schaplin.itch.io/ most of my games (the ones that don't need work in some for or other) are to be found there!

schaplin.itch.io/ <- Best of F#iends and A Question for Mama available - everything else coming soon!

Exciting things - uploading all my small games to a portal that isn't just my Google Drive.

Less exciting things - oh, I've written a lot of little games...

Moment of utter cyberpunk dystopia for your delectation - having to pay (licence?) to retain memories of your experiences. Initially regarding visiting landmarks but the possibilities are endless.

So I've started watching "The Order" on Netflix. It's probably not surprising (given apparently it's a perfect match for my tastes), that, at least as far as I've watched so far, it's also a perfect match for my "Best of F#iends" game - bit.ly/bestoffiends
Now, if only I could find anyone to play it with me...

Just facilitated a great game of The Good Society for the all female/enbee creator month at the Stockholm roleplaying group. Super fun!

Lunchtime gladness - just read a decent pair of fantasy/litrpg novels that were even better for having an Ace main character and super diverse cast.

Also, my Swedish class covered gender neutral pronouns alongside more "traditional" ones.

Latest game-orientated fiddling - you are a group of heroes summoned by the Cinnamon Fairy to save the World of Confection from the evil Gummy Drop Plague. I may have also jotted down the phrase "Soda Genies"...

So I've spruced up "Best of F#iends" - my attempt to create a stripped down game for messy teen dramas (think CW network, Veronica Mars, Pretty Little Liars &c.) to have a little more going on - if you're interested, you can grab it here: bit.ly/bestoffiends

The new Indie RPG Pipeline is live!
(link: theindierpgpipeline.blogspot.c) theindierpgpipeline.blogspot.com
Through the Pipeline, I look to help spread the word of new indie tabletop roleplaying games being released and going into crowdfunding. You can follow by blog, rss feed or by daily email digest.

Nothing gave me as much clarity that the vacation was needed as having a torrent of game-ideas after a drought of almost a year.

Now I just need to get it all down organised and find people who want to explore such weird ideas with me...

Whilst on vacation a couple of weeks ago I had thoughts on several game projects:
- A cosy mystery game starring a Romance Author (which I mentioned earlier)
- Apocalypse Coffee - a game which balances working in a coffee shop, life and preventing the end of the world
- A "B Side" game to "Gracie & the Sunbeams" about what happens when you're no longer famous
- A collection of mini/solo games and tweaks to existing projects

Ideally, the tension will come, not from uncovering secrets but how to help everyone in a fashion that truly helps (almost like DitV in that sense).

Lunchtime thought - a cosy mystery style RPG starring a Romance Author who creates Happy Endings for the other principles rather than solving murders. That is, a game based on the premise, what if Jessica Fletcher wrote Romance rather than Mystery

The last of these, which happened this week (or so), is set in not-America, where said magic is (officially) forbidden. But, more importantly, includes Powerful Deities running around (as opposed to the original three which have a bit more of an Enlightenment feel).

The first three of these games I put together a while ago and focuses on a not-Europe (and not-Near East). With a magic system based around vaguely Demonic Metals.

How do people feel about strange one-shot PbtA fantasy games set in I-can't-believe-it-isn't-the-18th-Century? Ones with odd Magic systems (totally not cribbed from elsewhere)? How do people feel about four of them linked in strange/fun ways? Find 'em here: bit.ly/SACRPG_Marked

Anyone have links to Stockholm(ish) based Roleplayers? I properly moved to the City a month ago and miss pretending to be someone I'm not. (References available upon request)
